Hey kids, it’s not too late to register for the PeopleForBikes National Bike Challenge, which calls for 100,000 riders to pedal 75 million miles through September. We signed up today, and now we’re recruiting you. In the market for fresh wheels? Behold the bounty on the following pages…
PeopleForBikes (Pure Fix, $399): For each of these glossy white fixies sold, Pure Fix will donate $100 to PeopleForBikes, which works on a number of initiatives like the Green Lane Project that helps US cities build bike lanes and the Community Grant Program that provides funding for building bike paths and parks, rail trails, BMX facilities and more.
Street (Momentum, $425): This lightweight aluminum frame marries confidence and comfort for those navigating crowded city streets. The upright position keeps you in control, and the classic styling with functional highlights like a cup- and lock-holder, chain guard and rear rack keeps you looking fresh.
Allston 1 Urban Bike (Schwinn, $660): Boasting a relaxed riding position and convenient leg clearance with its Dutch-style steel frame and fork, this cruiser makes for an easy roll through town.
Expressway 1 Folding Bike (Giant, $600): Because this compact bike with just 20-inch wheels folds in half, it’s an ideal commuting option for city dwellers with limited storage space.
Stumpjumper FSE Expert 650b (Specialized, $5,700): Thanks in large part to 9m carbon construction and a low, slack geometry, this all-rounder can tackle all trails.
Norcom Straight 1.1 (Fuji, $7,370): Training for a triathlon? This option is equipped with ultra high-modulus aero tubing, an integrated seat clamp and head tube and a water mount to get you to the finish line fast.
Porteur S (Faraday Bikes, starting at $2,499): Looking to leave the spandex army behind? This pedal-assisted electric bike will have you blowing past Armstrong wannabes while barely breaking a sweat.
Plug 3 (Charge, $1,399): If you’re looking for a lightweight road bike, the carbon disc fork and lightweight wheelset on the Plus 3 will make your ride a breeze. Meanwhile, the Shimano Tiagra 2×10 groupset allows for fancy footwork when you encounter tricky terrain.
Redux 3 (Raleigh, $950): The Redux 3 combines an aggressive design and disc brakes with wider street tires for picking up speed, so you can take it downtown or off-roading.
Elliptigo Arc (Elliptigo, $1,299): Looking to get a workout and some fresh air at the same time? The Elliptigo Arc is the newest, lightest and most affordable “outdoor elliptical,” replete with eight gears that allow you to comfortably cruise, sprint and climb steep hills.
Astor (Brilliant, starting at $299): With Brilliant, you can build your own ideal bike. Just choose between the Versatile and Relaxed options, select where you plan to ride (hilly cities like San Francisco, variable cities like New York City or flat cities like Chicago), add your height, pick a color and go.
